ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A massive blaze in Worth County claimed a couple's home Saturday night they made it out safely but they lost everything.

Flames engulfed the home in the 368 block of Red Rock Road, it happened around 7:30.

There was no mailbox on Red Rock displaying the address crews were looking for. They traveled back and forth in the area looking for flames.

The house was in a wooded area more than a quarter mile down a winding unpaved driveway.

Johnny Dykes and his wife owned the home, the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
